GAME INFO (controls, powerup info, etc) is in the "info" section on the main game screen.

If you want to play this game bigger (fullscreen), faster and with higher quality audio, please visit to get the downloadable home game. Mac and PC versions available.


The Gamma Brothers spend their days working in a huge space station near Jupiter. What could they possibly be working on? Something very important, no doubt.

The Gamma Brothers also understand the importance of not working. Every day at quitting time they hop into their commuter vehices for the long, difficult journey back to earth. Every day, to and from work, they must survive many vicious and clever alien attacks!

It is up to YOU to guide the Gamma Brothers home. Prepare yourself for the ultimate space commute battle!

CONTROL : A,W,S,D fires in 4 directions, and directional keys move. You can reconfigure this under the game's "info" section. The controls may seem strange at first, but it's necessary for the more intense parts of the game. You'll get used to it quickly.

In the hangar, press 'return' to select your player.

Collect coins to buy better weapons from the little orange space capitalist who shows up every now and then.

Shoot asteroids to collect gems, which may come in handy later.

Your bro will come by every now and then for a tag team. This will probably help out if you take too much damage.

If you want to jump right into crazy action, use the level password GOLVL2.

Old School Goodness

This, was THE funest game i have played on Newgrounds. ITs 100% awsome guys, the only thing i hope for if you make a second one, is being able to shoot diagonaly, although that would b tough so i dont know how to pull that off unless you use a mouse. Even if you dont, i hope you make a second one!

pixeljamgames responds:

the next pixeljam game in development will have diagonal firing. look for it in about a month or so....

this is the best arcade shooter on newgrounds!

it really is! but i got a problem! i came to the black ball enemy but it... it just froze in the middle of the game! and im NOT going trought the WHOLE game again but it was soooooooo cool!!!! keep up the arcade fun! ^_^

pixeljamgames responds:

wierd on the freeze up. but not suprising with flash, especially if there is other flash open in other windows. try downloading the play-at-home version, which might be more stable. also, password to start at level 3 : GOLVL3
